On a trip to visit family in my hometown, my husband and I stayed two nights at the Bel-Aire. This used to be the place to stay in Erie but it has gone downhill in that last several years. The hotel is old and needs updated. Very dark hallways, rooms not well lit and very slow WiFi. The king size bed was not very comfortable and the sheets seemed at bit too small as they came off during the night. Pillows small and uncomfortable. Ice machine did not work on our floor. The breakfast buffet is $4 for guests but not worth it. Powdered scrambled eggs, breakfast sandwiches wrapped in foil and sitting under a heat lamp, everything a bit cold. Plastic and stryrofoam cups for beverages. In the age of being green - glasses and coffee mugs would go a long way. Not worth even $4. Would not recommend to others.
